The term “Fruit” usually refers to a structure of a plant containing the seeds. In the World Crops Database, the “Fruits” category refers only to fruits that are fleshy and are usually eaten raw (such as bananas, apples and mangoes). The category does not include vegetable fruits (e.g. beans, peas) or cereals.
There are hundreds of fruit species and many of these are eaten fresh as hand fruits or in desserts. Others are processed to make jams, marmalade or are used in cakes, cookies, ice cream, fruit juices, fruit wines or other products.
Fruits are often a good source of vitamins. Most have a high water content and depending on the type they may contain a lot of fiber and sugars. Generally fruits are considered good for health as they contain important vitamins (especially Vitamin C). Eating a lot of fruits is found to reduce risks of cancer, cardiovascular disease, strokes, and other health problems.
Some of the most important fruit crops in the world include banana, apple, grape, watermelon and mango.
